I stumbled upon videos by Dr. Mount Pleasant while researching the three sisters planting system. She is an expert in the field of native agricultural systems, both in academia and in conducting field trials, that demonstrate yield, complimentary protein profiles and numbers of people who can be fed from such a system. She is Iroquois through her father.

I copied this from her profile... check out the video at the bottom.

I really like her no nonsense style.

Tonight, I will dig up a bunch more of her videos and post them here. That didn't happen. I will get on to it soon.

Jane Mt. Pleasant (Tuscarora)

Graduate Professor

15G Plant Science

Dr. Mt. Pleasant's research focuses on Indigenous cropping systems, plants, and human well-being. She lectures frequently on Indigenous agriculture and its links to contemporary agricultural sustainability, and is considered a national expert in Iroquois agriculture. Dr. Mt. Pleasant has been exploring Iroquois agriculture from a multi-disciplinary perspective that includes history, archaeology, paleobotany, and cultural /social anthropology in order to provide a critically needed bridge between scholars in the humanities and social sciences who work in Iroquois Studies.
